Dear visitor,

Hello and welcome to my official website!

My name is Cristian Chirila. I was born and raised in Romania but after I attended college and received my degree from the University of Texas – Dallas, I moved to and still reside in California. In addition to being a professional chess player, I am also a journalist, a commentator, the head coach and resident Grandmaster at Bay Area Chess and an MMA enthusiast. You may have seen some of my articles in various publications including US Chess or recognize me from the commentary team for the Saint Louis Chess Club broadcasts. I have included links to those works on this website, should you wish to check it out. Thank you for your interest.

All the best,

Cristian
